No more URL copy & paste for me !

Ever wrote a word document where you needed to use a lot of hyperlinks? You need to go to your internet site, copy the URL, go back to the document, mark you text, right-click, select “Hyperlink”, paste the address in the link textbox and press OK ! well, no more !

Apparently there is a better technique to do this in word:

  1. Mark your text, right-click it and select “Hyperlink” from the context menu.
  2. Open the required site in your browser (you can also move to an already opened browser).
  3. Move back to the word document where the Hyperlink dialog is already opened.

Presto ! the address of the site you were just in will appear in the hyperlink’s textbox !

Unfortunately, this feature only uses URL from internet explorer, so for all of you firefox / chrome fans, you need to stick with copy & paste.
